I noticed it only after shorting my wheelbase 1mm. I am running 27.5 rear and grey springs with the mm camber link weight due to very low traction at our indoor track.

I'm running the box set up on my truck except for 27.5 oil in the rear shocks and the brass hinge weight. I have only raced it once and didn't switch anything just trying to adjust to the truck. but would realy like more steering coming out of the turn what should I adjust ?? I was going to change the rear anti squat to 2mm and then add 1mm shim under the front ball stud.

I dropped the drag brake from 5% to 0% and this helped a fair amount.

Try moving your rear hubs back 1 or 2mm, or go to 2.5 degrees of rear toe.

Thanks for the reply I'll get to try it out this weekend. Only thing it will be a new layout hopefully it's a lil more open and not a tight technical layout like last months....

I'm very curious to get some feedback on that as well.

I have to say, kit setup is pretty darn good. I've been trying to improve upon it, but shorty in MM with kit setup and 27.5wt rear/brass pivot, is about as good as it gets. I was fighting a little bit of deceleration/corner entry steering, but realized I'm at 1 deg rear camber and not 1.5. I think that is the ticket to get better rotation into and through the corner.

And stock slipper spring will work on 13.5t motors. I'm almost at full spring compression of the spring, but it is working.

I'm not sure a sideways battery will help much in 13.5 -- I already have good rear traction with an inline shorty, and the Exotek guys said this chassis will probably be at least as heavy as the stock chassis. I really don't want to add any more weight to the vehicle.

Default turns like a milk truck!!

Ok 2nd time out with my truck and was getting killed on the track by other trucks diving inside the turns on me all nite long. I am the only TLR truck here all the rest are mostly T5m's and a cpl Kyoshos. Is there something I can do to get my truck to turn a sharper radius ?? or could I have something assembled or adjusted wrong ??

If you moved your hubs all the way back and increased your anti-squat and don't have enough steering then perhaps you should try rearranging your electronics. I run a full size servo with the battery behind then the escrow mounted on the chassis between the battery and motor. Works great for me on a tight indoor carpet track.

Post your setup. I'm running kit setup with steering EPA set to max allowed by the steering hubs. Shorty battery back, ESC on top, brass rear pivot, +1mm on the front shock tower ballstud, -2.5wt on the rear oil. It's pretty good on indoor mid-high dirt/clay.

He is running 2 saddle packs so he cant move his battery forward like your picture, and his ESC is in top of the battery hold down like the manual. And our track is a high bite clay so I am assuming a carpet setup would be close.

I'm running the kit setup except 27.5 wt in the rear with the brass mm hinge weight and 1mm spacer under the front tower ball stud. And have my epa turned all the way up on my radio.
